As we all sat down in the grand, old fashioned concert hall, the Aberdeen Rock Choir welcomed us with some cheesy tunes before the compere, clad in a Highland kilt (who quite frankly stole the show!) introduced the evening ahead of us. In the first act, dozens of carefully styled looks from independent fashion retailers adorned the catwalk on models, both male and female of many different ages, shapes and sizes- the diversity was refreshing! The designs that stood out for me were Atelier Daniel Crozier, who after graduating from Aberdeen’s own Gray’s School of Art now creates modern haute couture evening wear, and Helen Ruth, a creator of stunning silk scarves hand printed with nature-inspired designs.
A great part of the evening was the entertainment, which often complemented the catwalk show, for example singers performed floor-filling tunes while male models strutted down the runway in tailor-made suits, and belted out sassy songs from Cabaret during a provocative lingerie showcase. The stand-out piece for us however was an emotional Contemporary Dance performance by Aberdeen’s Danscentre and fun, upbeat hip-hop choreography too! Overall, the event was a success, leaving guest filled with festive fashion inspiration.
